    Ukrainian Punk Special - Cardinal Birds

    Ukrainian Punk band Cardinal Birds are our guests for this special episode.


    Dee, Max and Vlad are all still in Ukraine and living with the reality of war; because of the Russian invasion, we couldn't conduct a 'normal' interview because of the fear of rocked attacks so this interview will sound a little different.


    Together with the charitable organization "Rise with a Purpose, Inc", the band has created T-shirts that are being sold on Amazon. All proceeds from these T-shirts will be donated directly to charities in Ukraine. You can pick up a Tshirt via this link.


    You can buy digital music from the band via their Bandcamp page or this link

Wizzo jock ,

Awesome stuff

Wicked podcast interviewing some of my heroes. The interview with Chris Jay from army of freshmen was one of the most revealing interviews I have heard from a guy in the music industry who is not making a real living from his dream. Eye opening
